    Nice Leather Strap on Deployant

    As the title says, I'm looking for a nice brown leather strap on a comfy deployant.
    Are these available as one purchase or do I need to purchase the strap and deployant
    separately from different places?
    This will be for every day wear, so it has to be rugged and long lasting.
    Pix and links will be greatly appreciated as I know practically nothing about this subject.
    If it matters, it'll be for a new Omega Speedmaster Pro; 20mm lugs.
    And I'm not averse to tasteful stitching along the edges, just nothing crazy.
    Thanks all.

    Re: Nice Leather Strap on Deployant

    On my Speedy Pro, I picked up a Heuerville strap and a 16mm brushed deployant clasp from Bob at MyWatchMaker.net.

    In my experience you'll likely need to source the strap and clasp separately if you want the best options available. I highly recommend Bob for the clasp.

    Yeah, that looks good.
    So, where do I get the best deployant?

    Nice Leather Strap on Deployant

    In such scenario, I will try to get the OEM deployant first (usually from ebay) and find a strapmaker who can make a strap that fits the deployant.

    For quality aftermarket deployant, I have had good experience with Miltat. I have a couple of their divers clasp and they are very well built. A bit pricey, but the quality difference is there compared to the cheaper ones from Ebay or AliX.

    From Bob, also linked in my post.

    FYI, on that specific strap, you need a 16mm deployant because it tapers so much.

    Otherwise, buy the strap first then order your deployant after you have received the strap and measured the size at the buckle.

    Camille Fournet and ABP both offer deployants as an option for their fully custom straps. Not cheap but for a Speedy? Quite reasonable. PLENTY of leather options. ABP has the wider options, but I'd say work through the process on both for yourself.

    Re: Nice Leather Strap on Deployant

    I put deployants on all my straps.

    Easy to do and really adds a touch of class to the strap, IMHO.

    Might check out this sticky for ideas.
